Question about 1992 Geo Tracker

3 Answers

My car won't start. It is a '92. The instruments

My car won't start. It is a '92 Geo Tracker. The instruments light up and it starts at times. I took battery terminals off and cleaned them but it still won't start. A mechanic friend said he bypassed the clutch switch and it started for him, without stepping on clutch, but now it won't start for me, again. I don't know what to do and I can't afford to take it to a shop at this time, because I spent a lot recently on the breaks and I am struggling to pay my bills before a trip that I am goingon in 2 weeks, with my mother.

Take the battery off and have it bench tested, then if this is not the problem, take the starter off and have it bench tested. Remove one plug, geround it to the car and see if you are receiving any spark, have the timing checked, unfornately, a lot of things can be the cause of a car not sarting, its simply a trial and error process, it could also be a clogged fuel filter or injectors.

Have you checked the fuel regulator and the pressure from the fuel pump to ensure it is not weak. In addition, you might want to check and see if fuel is going into the cyl. the catalytic converter may be plugged based on the year of the car. To check this you could pull the o2 sensor out of the exhaust and see if it keeps running, realize it won't run at 100%. If it is the back pressure will not allow fuel to come into the cyl.

Is the fuel pump running? When you turn the key to the run position (the dash lights come on), you should hear a humming sound coming from the gas tank for a few seconds. Thats the fuel pump running to pressurize the system before starting. It's kind of hard to hear, so get a friend to sit in the car while you lay on the ground near the gas tank. Have them turn on the key and listen. No hum means the fuel pump isnt working.
